About Advocacy Day:
CLRC is chartering a bus to Albany to take library supporters to Library Advocacy Day. This event, sponsored by NYLA – New York Library Association, gives participants the opportunity to meet with state legislators and continue conversations on the importance of libraries in their communities.

Check out the CLRC Advocacy page on our website for a list of regional legislators. Download NYLA Legislative Priorities here. A schedule of appointments will be provided to all participants.

For bus riders:
Pickup locations will be at the CLRC office on Ridings Road in Syracuse and the North Utica Shopping Plaza in Utica (located at 50 Auert Avenue). Additional stops along the New York State Thruway at the Herkimer and Little Falls Commuter Park & will be added if needed.
